What Drives You?
Can   I   tell   you   about   my   truck?   (Warning   –   this   is   a   poor   excuse   of   a   newsletter.)   It’s   a   fairly   rugged  
’95   Land   Rover   110   –   pretty   impossible   with   it’s   full   differential   lock   to   get   stuck   (I’ve   tried   of  
course).    The  truck  has  become  a  bit  of  a  hobby/passion  -­‐  Kelly’s  a  bit  jealous  (pray  for  us).    
When   I   bought   it   a   year   ago   it   looked   pristine   and   only   had   98,000kms   –   “That’s   because   it   was  
mostly   used   by   the   owner’s   mother   to   drive   her   grandchildren   to   school,”   said   the   salesman   (a  
Kenyan  “friend”).    I  sooo  wanted  to  believe  him.  
When   I   ran   into   the   former   owner,   a   high-­‐end   safari   operator,   a   few   months   ago,   he   said,   “Yep,  
great  truck!  Taken  me  over  200,000kms  to  every  game  park  in  East  Africa.”    Not  a  word  about  his  
  Down   but   not   out,   I   asked   him   why   the   registration   book   was   dated   2002   and   not   1995.  
 “That’s   because   I   bought   it   from   the   British   Army,   but   the   Lieutenant   who   used   it   in   Northern  
Kenya   was   a   good   man.”    Now   I   was   down   and   out.    Neither   the   truck’s   glorious   past   nor   the  
officer’s  goodness  could  console  me.  
  But  by  God’s  goodness  the  truck’s  been  problem  free,  fun  for  the  family  and  fantastic  for  
ministry.  After  carrying  soldiers  and  tourists,  it  now  carries  food,  medicine,  playground  equipment,  
short-­‐termers,  long-­‐termers  and  stranded  nomads  (oh,  and  bouncy  kids  and  a  beautiful  wife).  
  I  wanted  a  new,  near  perfect,  nanny-­‐driven  truck,  but  maybe  a  rebuilt,  redeemed  truck  is  
better  yet.    Thankfully,  none  of  us  are  ever  too  old  for  life  change,  for  re-­‐fitting,  re-­‐focusing  and  new  
ownership.    The  truck  just  carried  Kelly  and  I  on  our  20th  anniversary  outing.  As  happily  married  
40-­‐Somethings  we’re  feeling  very  thankful  but  somewhat  old.    We  want  to  be  like  our  truck,  living  
more  and  more  meaningful  lives  in  the  years  and  days  ahead.    
  Staying   with   automobiles,   there’s   a   motor   oil   billboard   in   Nairobi   with   the   slogan   “What  
Drives  You?”    Tour  guide,  soldier,  missionary/community  development  worker  -­‐  the  driver  makes  
all  the  difference.      
  Except  for  my  truck  (and  soccer),  I’m  usually  tongue  tied  when  asked  about  my  passions  
(I’m  a  laid  back  Canadian  for  goodness  sake).    But  God’s  passionate.  “For  God  so  loved  the  cosmos  
that  he  gave  his  one  and  only  Son.”    And  He  too  enjoys  the  driver’s  seat.    “All  the  Preliminaries  have  
been  taken  care  of  and  the  rule  of  God  has  come  to  everyone.    Review  your  plans  for  living  and  base  
your  life  on  this  remarkable  opportunity”  (Mark  1:15).    Today,  right  now,  may  we  all  be  driven  by  
God’s  present,  practical  and  passionate  Lordship  as  we  interact  with  his  world  –  with  its  flora  and  
fauna,  soil  and  societies,  buildings  and  businesses,  wild  places  and  wonderful  people  –  their  minds,  
souls  and  bodies.  
(it’s  actually  a  CBM  vehicle,  not  mine).  In  Christ,  Paul  and  Kelly  Carline.  
PS      The  Carlines  are  good  friends  with  Zephaniah  &  Florence  Otuki.
